One thing has to be said clearly: The flying discus battery has only charged energy for lifting and tilting (2-3 minutes)! At start, the lift off (stage 1), the tilt (the first horizontal movement, stage 2) and the float horizontal movement (stage 3) can consume the bulk of the stored energy (of the total 32 battery blocks, with a total of approx. 600 kg weight). Stage 1 to stage 3 will require a maximum of 2-3 minutes. There will be only as much voltage in the 32 battery blocks for the use of braking the same 32 battery blocks (magnetically) – after releasing this 32 battery blocks to the outwards. The size and weight of the total 32 battery blocks are designed according to these specifications – the power in these 32 battery blocks must be sufficient for 2-3 min (stage 1 to stage 3). Everything afterwards is first of all fresh and free: unimportant. But this is probably the greatest psychological challenge, the passengers need a lot of confidence: after these 2-3 min (stage 1 to stage 3) other forces will work (Ohh yes they will work). For me personally, the biggest psychological challenge is, to sit in between 150,000 litres of kerosene (cramped like an oil sardine).
Well, let’s assume that we have made stage 1 to stage 3 (lift, tilt and float drive), the batteries are almost empty and we jump into flight stage 4 (riding on our shockwave). Now we increase speed (for the shockwave) – at the same time, we reduce the resistance value with the air intake via the bearing surface. Since this stage 4 is the flight condition of “relaxation” we do not have to lift any more, the flow is on the “bearing surface“, no more work to do with our “floats” – and the rotor blades inside are also very flat (the air sucked over the air-foil is ejected to the rear). And in this stage 4 of “relaxation” (our cruise flight stage), after 2-3 minutes flight time – almost all the energy in the battery blocks are spent – we know that we could fly only a few more minutes (a few more minutes only in the RELAXATION-FLIGHT-CONDITION stage 4 – it would not be enough for another lift-off and flipping). And right NOW, after we jumped in stage 4, we are releasing our 32 battery blocks. Now at 800 rpm a 25 kg battery block by the centrifugal force will weigh 80 tons (in the innermost radius). And the approx. 7 kg battery packs now also deliver around 800,000 newton´s (80 tons). The battery blocks are now “released” and controlled braking – 26 million Newton’s now press outwards and with force magnetically slowed down. These are about 2,600 tons of centrifugal weight-power. With this magnetic “brake symphony” the 32 battery blocks have to equaly balance the two rotor discs.
Captain to passengers: This is your captain speaking. Please keep calm, we have almost empty batteries and only electricity for a few minutes flight time, but from now on we do not have any more 600 kg batteries, but we have about 2,600 tons of batteries on board. And NOW we are jumping into the next flight-level stage 4. From now on, with the controlled “release” and controlled “braking” of these 2,600 tons of battery blocks, we get back what we have invested in the start stage 1 to stage 3 (invested in the rotation of the two rotor discs) – and from now on we are flying exactly with this reward, thus with 2,600 tons of braked centrifugal force (and we recharge our almost empty batteries) – all this has nothing to do with the so-called “free energy“, its simple physic.
Crew and passengers: (Applause and great relief) Wow, great, our batteries are almost empty and we are still flying – and without kerosene! But, of course, this rebounded investment is not only sufficient for 2-3 minutes of flight time (as for lifting and tilting), but in the relaxed flight condition (cruise stage 4) with less power consumption, we will fly for several hours.
So the biggest psychological challenge: passengers have to use a discus aircraft, they clearly know that the flying discus has only loaded electric power for 2-3 min for lifting and tilting – then it’s over (of course we can´t empty the batteries). From then on (from flight stage 4 on), we only have a few minutes flight time remaining, they have to rely on what we call in physic “pseudo force” – we can´t even measure it on ground. This special point, this (apparent) uncertainty and lack of reserves (oversized security and reserves always have a lot of weight and cost a lot of kerosene), that we can measure nothing has already elicited many “Fuchs-you-are-completely-crazy” titles.
And yet I do not quite understand it, because we rely on so much in technology. We rely on the fact that the brake lines do not burst with the car in the curve at 120 km/h, and we also rely on the fact that the altitude display is correct at landing, or the pilot is not wrong in the estimation, because in reality Is such a landing only a planned flow jam (it´s also a jump into a new dimension) – in which then hopefully only 30 cm (instead of 5 meters) below it is a runway – we also rely on there are wheels to roll on … We rely on so much in our technology and it´s always a jump from one dimension to the next. We rely on it because we have tested it and have experience.
And then, of course, the next question arises: what is after these 1-2 hours of flight time (maybe it is more than 2 hours) when the 32 battery blocks have reached the end of their magnetic distance? Theoretically, we would then have to land to transport the battery blocks back into their original position without any resistance (without centrifugal force). We do not land, but we fake a landing: We go in flight (we are now already very fast) into a beautiful glide-descent (3m/sec) – none of the passengers will recognize it. While gliding we stop the rotation of the two rotor discs (now we have no shockwave on which we ride) and we drive back the battery blocks to their home station (now without any centrifugal force power, our battery blocks have only 25 kg and 7 kg). Of course, we can never completely empty our battery blocks – energy management is very important. After this, we bring the two rotor discs back into rotation and all is going on like before this return-action. This total return action of the battery blocks (with rotor disc standstill, no rotation of the rotor disks) takes 10 to max. 20 seconds – it´s just a new trick: a pretend landing to further flight time extension (it can be repeated again and again …).
